Waiter ruined everything. Didn't even know what he didn't know - like that there is more than one kind of Oyster - even though he was telling us that there was an oyster special. Food - meh, been better. This location is hard to maneuver....More

Plenty of people use this place for a first date. Slick atmosphere. Good waiters. We had drinks here and had excellent wine and an absolutely wonderful tomato salad. I liked it- but we were there before it got busy- by 7 it was very busy,,,

The atmosphere is casual and I don't love sitting at the communal table, i always feel I can't speak freely while seated so close to other people. Food is delicious, but very expensive. Would visit again tho.

I had been to the Fig and Ilive downtown, which is a cavernous space with tons of energy and delicious food. The uptown location serves the same amazing food, in a much smaller, calmer environment. The staff were perfectly present to anticipate our needs, but...More

the nation's most famous attractions in a single

At FIG & OLIVE, we want to highlight our menu’s core ingredient of olive oil, which we use in place of butter in our dishes. From a sweet and delicate olive oil from the French Riviera that pairs well with a Steamed Lemon Sole Papillote to an assertive Spanish Picual or a Tuscan olive oil that holds its own with Seared Salmon with Fennel and Green Olives, and a green-fruit Provence olive oil that we serve with a Green Apple Sorbet. Our cuisine along with an elegant white, green and terra-cotta décor immerse our guests into the essence of the Mediterranean region.
